which binds everything together in perfect harmony.”

Ron’s introduction and explanation of “Harmonic Convergence”
Posted below is an updated version of a poem titled Harmonic Convergence about urgent necessity of our living together harmoniously with each other and Nature. It was composed in the 1990’s during my extended post-retirement period of solitude. At that time most humans were behaving fearfully and crazily, and suffering karmically, because we had forgotten our eternal Oneness with Nature and all Life on our precious planet. Since then our condition has deteriorated more than ever before.
For the first time in our recorded history, human insanity now threatens all life on Earth with omnicidal nuclear catastrophe or imminent climate collapse. So in introducing today’s updated Harmonic Convergence poetry I propose that we must avert ecological self-annihilation and human-threatened needless cataclysms by ending the psychopathic behaviors which have caused them.
As a compassionate human family we must urgently cherish or perish; and immediately live lovingly and harmlessly in harmony and synchrony with Nature and with all life on our precious planet.
Consciously and conscientiously we must at long last follow preeminent perennial wisdom common to all enduring religious, spiritual, indigenous, and ethical traditions, that above all else we do no harm to others, and do not thoughtlessly despoil our planet; but that with reciprocal respect, empathy and sympathy we compassionately treat all beings with the same dignity we wish for ourselves, and that they wish for themselves.

May we harmonize,
together in unity:
Unity in diversity,
Unity in equality,
Unity in integrity,
Ron’s audio recitation of “Harmonic Convergence”
May today’s poem, with preceding comments and quotations, inspire our harmonious thoughts, words and deeds to help heal the world, individually and societally, beyond illusory perceived separation from our spiritual Oneness with each other and Nature.
Ever mindful of our Oneness with Nature and all Life on our precious planet and beyond:
May we treat all beings with the same dignity we wish for ourselves, and that they wish for themselves; and
May we do all in our power to prevent insanely unsustainable despoliation of our precious planet.
And so shall it be!
